A museum in need

I just got word that the museum in Elblag Poland has been flooded when water pipes bursted. Lots of thier litterture had been destroyed or lost and it seems that they are in need to replace this. If I understand correctly it foremost concerns litterature on the Viking age and especially regarding the early medieval Vikings’ emporium near Elblag in Poland called Truso. If you have scans of articles, reports etc they would need this – if you want or can help contact @Pogezana via Twitter.

Link in polish – though lots of pictures on the flooding.

I’ll be digging in Stockholm

Got unemployed last week but things are all ready brighter as I’ll start working on a new project on Wednesday next week for Sweden’s oldest private archaeology company Arkeologikonsult, in the business since 1988.

I’ll be working on an excavation, in Stockholm, on a gravefield dated to the late Viking Age/early Middle Ages the coming three or four weeks.

It will be great as I’ll work with Johan Klange, whom I’ve been working on the Yangshaoproject, and with osteologist/archaeologist Leif Johnsson, whom I worked with in Kronoberg and with Arkeologicentrum, among others.
